As I compile these notes for the readership, I’ve got to admit that one of the last things I felt I would be composing was a tour announcement of any kind and sure, I’ve done a couple of them over the last few weeks but they still kind of surprise me when it comes to anything being scheduled stateside. That said, here is some news from the crushing Metal artists Jinjer.

Charlotte Wessels Statement On Her Delain Departure

Yesterday we helped to share the news about Martijn Westerholt announcing Delain’s return to being a project-based band as all members, including singer Charlotte Wessels, had left the current lineup (seen HERE for the folks who didn’t see it). Now its time to share what Charlotte has to say about this news.

The Statement:
Delain has been my world for nearing 16 years, which is half of my life and my entire career. So it is with a heavy heart that I am confirming that Delain will continue as Martijn’s solo project, and my involvement with Delain ends here.

At this time, I know that you might have questions about the ‘why’ in all of this. I fully understand and respect that. Simply put, it is the sad conclusion of more than a year of trying to find solutions to built up grievances. Part of me feels like I’m letting all of you down, I’d like you to know that this decision was not taken lightly and I apologise to those of you who had high hopes of seeing all of us together live on stage again after lockdown. Until recently, I thought this might still be in the cards for us as well.

Martijn Westerholt Returns Delain To Project-Based Group

The Statement:
For the last year or so, the collaboration within the band ceased to work as well as it once had. Some of us were no longer happy with the current roles in the band. We all tried very hard to find a solution for over a year, but sadly we were unable to find one.

As a result, we will all be going our own ways and pursuing our own endeavors. I am very sad our cooperation has come to end, but at the same time I am very grateful for all the years we were able to work together. Together we toured the world, shared highs and lows, and met with many successes as well as times that pushed us to learn and grow. We all enjoyed meeting our fans and making new friends all over the globe. I would like to thank my fellow bandmates and wish Timo, Otto, Joey, and especially Charlotte the very best for the future. And I hope that will mean onwards and upwards to new musical adventures for each of them!

Since ELVELLON came to life in 2010, the four-piece played its way straight into the heart of a steadily growing fan base with a captivating symbiosis of orchestral arrangements, heavy riffs and the striking voice of Nele Messerschmidt on vocal duties. After releasing their self-recorded 5-track EP, Spellbound (2015), and being dubbed as “heroes of tomorrow” by German Metal Hammer magazine, the band presented its critically acclaimed debut album, Until Dawn, three years later in 2018. Sharing the stage with scene leading VISIONS OF ATLANTIS and entering festival grounds like Rock Harz, Metal Hammer Paradise, M’era Luna, Rock Fest Barcelona, Metalfest Open Air and Rage Against Racism Festival, to name just a few, ELVELLON are now up to lift their inimitable output to the next level.
